A man hiking with his son found a decomposing body along a trail in Little Mulberry Park off Fence Road Sunday evening.

Detectives and the Gwinnett Police Crime Scene Investigation Unit were not able to determine the gender of the body due to the state of decomposition, Gwinnett police spokesman Jeffery Richter said.

He said the cause of death was also not immediately known and an autopsy will be performed at the Gwinnett County Medical Examiners office.
